It's not uncommon for the Edyn Garden Sensor to read 10 or even 20 degrees hotter than your local weather forecast at the hottest time of the day. Humidity can also vary by up to 20%. The reason is that the Edyn Sensor is actually not designed to replace a weather station or outdoor ambient temperature monitor. It is designed to monitor the conditions actually experienced by your plants, and help you to optimize those conditions and care for them better. On a sunny day, sunlight is absorbed by the dark soil underneath your plants, and then radiated back at them throughout the day. As a result, your plants do often experience temperatures that are higher than what a 3rd party weather service would report for your area. Likewise, this extra heat can also affect the relative humidity around your plants. The Edyn Garden Sensor is designed to monitor this local variation, and report it to you via the Edyn app. By contrast, a 3rd party weather service typically uses a weather station at a local airport, which could have significantly different readings than what is experienced by your plants.
